Charlie had made a collection of 54 Lakhs from the Ernakulam multiplexes, within the first 4 days of its release. But, Pulimurugan managed to make 57 Lakhs, when it completed 4 days at the centres.
The Mohanlal movie made more than 15 Lakhs on its releasing day, from the Ernakulam multiplexes. Later, it collected an average of 14 Lakhs on the second, third, and fourth days of its release.
Pulimurugan had a grand opening at the box office by collecting 4.5 Crores on its release day. Thus, the movie broke the record of Kasaba to become the Malayalam film with the highest initial collection.
Later, Pulimurugan went on to surpass the records set by Mohanlal's Oppam, by becoming the fastest Malayalam movie to cross the 10-Crore and 20-Crore mark at the Kerala box office.
